The Huffington Post has published an article (Here) about the importance of writing, not just for academic purposes, but for fun. Children in this modern technological age have so many advantages over our generation, yet writing is not one of them. Every year fewer students write for pleasure. Writing for fun promotes creativity and is a source of inspiration. As mentioned in the Huffington Post, students who write for fun obtain higher grades at school, yet parents and educators ignore this key aspect of learning.
